Tidepooling?

What time is the tide low to do this? We'll be covering a lot of the coast, more specifically Edisto Island, Beaufort area, Charleston. Thanks!

Here are tides charts for Charleston Harbor, so times will be similar to those at the surrounding beaches -

Whether or not you come across an interesting tidal pool will depend on currents, storm activity, whether or not the beach is eroding/accreting, etc.

Tide pools are never guaranteed, sometimes I see them, more often, I don't.

You'll find more tidepools in places where there are rocky coastlines, not so much on the east coast.

I grew up in SoCal, we had marvelous tidepools on our rocky beach!!!
